The countdown to summer is well and truly on. After the year that's been, we're not going to be taking for granted the fine weather and fun events that make it our favourite season of all.

To help you make the most of those special summer occasions, we've teamed up with Glenmorangie to serve up six simple drink recipes. These refreshing serves are a breeze to make and all utilise the brand-new X by Glenmorangie. This single malt scotch was specially designed for mixing and is perfect for all your summery tipples, offering tasting notes of pear, vanilla, honeysuckle, orange sherbet and chocolate fudge.

FOR YOUR BACKYARD BARBECUE

50ml ginger beer
limes

Method

Fill a highball glass with crushed glass. Add X by Glenmorangie and ginger beer. Stir, squeeze three lime wedges over the drink, then use them to garnish.

FOR A SPOT OF AFTERNOON TEA

Marmalade? In a mixed drink? Just trust us on this. The old-school preserve provides the perfect balance of citrus and sweet. Serve it alongside an array of sweet and savoury snacks — think finger sandwiches and cupcakes — for a pleasant afternoon tea in the sunshine.

50ml X by Glenmorangie
20ml lime juice
3 tsp marmalade

Method

Pour X by Glenmorangie, lime juice and marmalade into a highball glass. Add ice, stir again and garnish with an orange twist.
